Whether you've been in church your whole life, you left church in your
youth, or you've never been part of a faith community, you are welcome
here! Let's find out what we can do together here in West Seattle.
Worship: Sundays at 10:30 am
Admiral Congregational Church is a member of the United Church of Christ, a progressive Protestant
denomination that consistently champions engaged spiritual practice and informed social participation.
We believe that Jesus Christ is and should be the sole head of the church, and that local congregations
should be unhindered in their autonomy while encouraged in their covenants with others. We are:
• An Open and Affirming Congregation
We actively seek to expand our welcome to all peoples, regardless of their sex, sexuality, gender
identity, social location, economic or immigration status, theology, or history. We recognize the
challenge of this commitment, and are willing to fail in order to grow.
• A God Is Still Speaking Congregation
We recognize the Hebrew Bible and New Testament as our sacred Scriptures, and as such we expect
them to speak to our lives today, in the 21st century. We question their content and wrestle with their
challenges, welcoming and encouraging both doubt and faith. We affirm that it is in this wrestling that
our commitment to the historical faith and the present community are and will be deepened.
• An Authentic Relationship Congregation
We desire to be in meaningful, mutually supportive relationships with one another. We believe that the
core of Jesus' message was to learn to love others the way God loves us, and we are learning to do so
both within and outside of our church community.

Join in the effort to collect new socks, gloves, hats and scarves for the clients of the Compass
Center of Seattle. The Compass Center provides day services and emergency shelter. They
work for and alongside people experiencing poverty and homelessness. They serve as a
welcoming space for people in need. Cash or check donations can be placed in the red can
by the church office. There is also a bin for donated items there. Our "it's a wrap" party will
be on Saturday, December 12th at 9:00 am in our fellowship hall. We welcome all items for the
men and women in need including basic toiletry items (soap, deodorant,
toothpaste/toothbrushes etc). Checks can be made out to Admiral Church with the notation
"Compass Center." More information: David Pelton, 206-932-8662.
